At SFO, bikes are being replaced by Segways after a careful study. While a bike is great for going down a long empty hall, the Segway works better in a crowd -- it can turn within its footprint and the rider stands above the crowd and can see and be seen easily. The 12mph speed, given crowded halls, is more than enough as the higher speeds a bike is capable of isn't usable.

This is practically the only decent use of a Segway I've heard of, so as cool as bikes are for airports, they aren't necessarily the best solution.


In Chicago it's illegal to ride a bicycle on a sidewalk in a business district. Granted the interior of a terminal at ORD is not a "sidewalk" but I mean, come on, either it's safe to mix pedestrians and bicycles or it's not safe.


They use bikes to partol the airport in Salt Lake City too.


ditto for Toronto Pearson...


There are bikes at PHX Sky Harbor that say Police on them, and I see overweight Police officers in spandex walking around the airport, but I have never seen them together.

Also saw bike police trolling around the Circus Circus parking garage last time I was in Vegas as well. Same thing as above as far as looks go. I had to deal with negotiating with one of them with their bike in the elevator as he would ride it to the top of the garage, then ride his bike down looking for "suspicious activity."
